Disgusting experience
On arrival the receptionist was not very helpful when we was given a key we took our luggage to the room to find that it had not been cleaned or bed made they looked for another room but didn't have one so had to wait for them to tidy the room, the bar was not open so had to go out to look for somewhere to get a drink no tea/coffee was made available while waiting. When returned to the room in the evening we noticed blockage in the sink and shower we could of booked for another night but didn't because we were very unsatisfied with ovarall experience

One good night
We arrived in the evening. The reception staff were busy on the telephone however gave us our key. The room was clean and I was glad to see the windows were open for our visits. When my fiancee needed to go to a supermarket, reception staff gave him directions. We both slept well. The bed was very comfortable with a very good shower. The room was good value for money.
